“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” – John 14:6-7.
“Whatever you ask in My (Jesus Christ) name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.” – John 14:13
Old Testament Prophecy:“He was despised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; And like one from whom men hide their face He WAS DESPISED, and we did not esteem Him. Surely OUR GRIEFS HE HIMSELF BORE, And OUR SORROWS HE CARRIED; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him STRICKEN, SMITTEN OF GOD, AND AFFLICTED. But He WAS PIERCED THROUGH for our transgressions, He WAS CRUSHED for our iniquities; The CHASTENING for our well-being FELL UPON HIM, And by His SCOURGING we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the INIQUITY OF US ALL TO FALL ON HIM. He WAS OPPRESSED and He WAS AFFLICTED, Yet He DID NOT OPEN HIS MOUTH; Like a lamb that is led to slaughter, And LIKE A SHEEP THAT IS SILENT BEFORE ITS SHEARERS, So He DID NOT OPEN HIS MOUTH. By oppression and judgment He was taken away; And as for His generation, who considered That He WAS CUT OUT OF THE LAND OF THE LIVING FOR THE TRANSGRESSION OF MY PEOPLE, to whom the stroke was due? His GRAVE WAS ASSIGNED WICKED MEN, Yet He was with a rich man in His death, Because He HAD DONE NO VIOLENCE, NORE WAS THERE ANY DECEIT IN HIS MOUTH. But the LORD was pleased To crush Him, putting Him to grief; If He would render Himself as a guilt offering, He will see His offspring, He will prolong His days, And the good pleasure of the LORD will prosper in His hand. As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; By His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, As He will bear their iniquities.” Isaiah 53:3-11

New Testament Fulfillment of the Crucifixion of The Messiah:
So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). There they crucified him, and with him two others—one on each side and Jesus in the middle. Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS. Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, “Do not write ‘The King of the Jews,’ but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews.” Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.” When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom. “Let’s not tear it,” they said to one another. “Let’s decide by lot who will get it.” This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled that said, “They divided my clothes among them and cast lots for my garment.” So this is what the soldiers did. Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.
The Death of Jesus
Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down. The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other. But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. Instead, one of the soldiers PIERCED JESUS’ SIDE WITH A SPEAR, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe. These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: “Not one of his bones will be broken,” and, as another scripture says, “They will look on the one they have pierced.” John 19:16-37
What does Jesus have to do with heaven?
Before Jesus came to earth, man had to give many sacrifices to the God of Abraham to atone for their errors, sins, and failings as humans. It was not uncommon for a pure and perfect lamb to be offered to God as penance. The God of Abraham grieved by the works of man decided to sin One who could be a final sacrifice for all men at that time and into the future. That man who did no wrong and spoke no wrongs would be like the perfect lamb offered to God as penance for the errors, sins, and failings of humanity. After Jesus came, man no longer needed to offer sacrifices or penance for their errors, sins, and failings to the God of Abraham. It was through the final sacrifice, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, that man was free and in a new relationship with the God of Abraham. The God of Abraham made a new declaration after the final sacrifice (Jesus): You can only get to God the Father (God of Abraham) through receiving the final sacrifice (Jesus).
‘Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me (Jesus). “If you had known Me (Jesus), you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.”’ John 14:6-7
‘Whatever you ask in My name (Jesus), that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. “If you ask Me (Jesus) anything in My (Jesus) name, I will do it.”’ John 14:13-14
